August 10th, 20123:52 pm
Most excellente! Thanks. Who are they?
whew, was getting odd downstairs.
August 10th, 20123:54 pm
Very good, very unique voice and use of different instruments you don’t usually see together. Neat. Have a good weekend everyone!
They BOTH suck

My submission about as non-down-home as it gets, but I felt like sharing.
I’ve recently re-acquainted myself with Television’s third lp–officially a reunion album, I guess, but it’s now 20 years old.
It’s better than I remember.
Here’s one of the lp’s creepier tunes…
Some of y’all just now catching up? They’ve been at the Grand Ole Opry several times…Great choice, IMAM.
One of their finest, imaou…

“Alabama Shakes rocks”
Some Athens boys and I caught their act at Eddie’s Attic.
August 10th, 20124:09 pm

A special thank you to the following posters: barking frog, They BOTH suck, JamVet, Paul, Redneck Convert, and Bernie.

Brother Bruno: if you are on the outside looking in……… for you
August 10th, 20124:22 pm
Your welcome. I wouldn’t sweat the bloggers you do not get along with; ignore them or do the “bull in the china shop” routine. It is all good. Have a great weekend
August 10th, 20124:25 pm
That is my routine, not yours. Don’t want that to be misconstrued.
A great weekend to you, also, They BOTH suck.

I had Carolina Chocolate Drops after eating at a rib joint up there…
I wish I could enjoy the music but the current polls showing Obama up by 9% has made me sick.
August 10th, 20124:51 pm
For Midori when she arrives.
great choice, Jay. Thanks !
August 10th, 20124:53 pm
Great! I’ve got all their autographs ‘n stuff, Jay, but never heard that one before. Thank you, sir!
August 10th, 20124:56 pm
August 10th, 20124:59 pm
How about something in memory of Rodney-can’t [they] all get along-King? Maybe a medley of white supremacist rock bands and some of LA’s finest rappers?
One of Alabama's own!

August 10th, 20125:04 pm
That Roy Orbison was amazing.
For sheer talent,artistry and a range of genres in a pretty young guy, this one’s hard to beat.
August 10th, 20125:07 pm
“I wish I could enjoy the music but the current polls showing Obama up by 9% has made me sick.”
Me too… that’s way too close based on the recent history of the wingnut party, their refusal to acknowledge or admit their complicity and culpability the economic meltdown and resulting government debt, and the racist sandbagging of a president whom theyve hated from day one and vowed to stop at any cost… it means that you wingnut rubes still can’t or won’t learn from your mistakes and you want more of the same…
In case you check in, here’s one for you…
August 10th, 20125:08 pm
They played at the Variety Playhouse in the past year. Great fun!
August 10th, 20125:10 pm
Didn’t stop you from dropping a deuce in the punchbowl, did it?
August 10th, 20125:11 pm
have they re-written all of the grethen wilso’s stuff and re-gendered any other hank jr songs? (oof! snark!)
here’s some neo-old-school hillbilly shitf. but it doesn’t without the hipster silliness.

Seeing Rush (for the first time!) a couple of years ago, was one of the highlights in an epic rock concert history…

moonbat, I like the subtle change of monikers.
OK, good peeps, I’m out for the evening.
You guys keep on…
August 10th, 20126:17 pm
i have been listening to the Carolina Chocolate Drops for a few years. They are classically trained musicans who play in the tradition of the String bands. So unique and daring to be different.
August 10th, 20126:22 pm
I am on the left side in this video:

Put this in your pipe and smoke it!

August 10th, 20126:45 pm
I’m still catching up. Oscar, re the woman in the Dr. Office – I’m not on a walker, but that sounds like something I would say!
Fred, thanks for the “sign” video. I laughed all the way through it!
August 10th, 20126:47 pm
Oh, I gotcha Jam. – batty – lol I kinda like that too.
My vision is going – been a long week.
Probably need a drink.
August 10th, 20127:13 pm
I guess everyone checked out
Out for a run then it’s beer :30
August 10th, 20127:14 pm
August 10th, 20127:31 pm
Just saw your 5:28 – I love talent that’s been developed through a lot of hard work.
your 5:37? Let’s dedicate it to Bernie, shall we?
August 10th, 20128:10 pm
I was sorta thinking Bernie, too….:-)
Things do seem a bit slow tonight…
Me? I’m still trying to find a mood to get into…not the best for a Friday night, eh?
I’ve been off on a 90s-00 male angst binge of late…but. I’m

Here’s “my girl” with a little personal information. At just 19 years old she is already paired with bluegrass giants Tim Stafford on guitar and Adam Steffey on mandolin.

Hey Y’all! HOMEGURRRLS bring it LIVE! (Okay, so she’s a transplant, but she’s our homegurl now.)
August 10th, 20128:28 pm
Here is something from my current playlist. I know it’s not as styled and esoteric as your offerings, but it sure gets your boots moving!
Redneck Convert (R--and proud of it)
August 10th, 20128:29 pm
Well, they ain’t down home, but these California boys sing about the best down-home music in the business. With this one, they’ll make you think of all the great people that never was because of being ground down by being poor and uneducated. There’s alot of people that came from those cotton fields and never stood a chance:
Have a good weekend everybody. I’m up here at Billy Bob’s sellabrating because Tiger’s in the lead with a couple others.
August 10th, 20128:33 pm
That NGDB is nice….
August 10th, 20128:36 pm
Maybe that’s what I need to do, go for a ride and roll the windows down…that is if I could get Unmentionable off the ipad and Roy Orbison long enough…
August 10th, 20128:37 pm
Howdy! Play me a misery song!
Seriously, though, hope life is treating you good…
August 10th, 20128:43 pm
I love me some MB 20. Brings back some memories! Thanks for that.
try this out for size:
August 10th, 20128:49 pm
I don’t know how it could get any more miserable than this one:
(Nice couples-dance rhythm, though…)
August 10th, 20128:52 pm
loved that one
Normal Free, Pro Human Rights Thug...And liking it!
August 10th, 20128:55 pm
I confess to no knowledge of bluegrass at all…sad for a Kentucky boy, but I do know of this Kentucky group…
August 10th, 20129:00 pm
How about this one?
August 10th, 20129:03 pm
Love that Blues Traveler…
Now, THAT’s misery!
Good to see you of a FNM…good cut…and, don’t lie, you a pyoh bred Hillbilly, you do, too, know from bluegrass…you jus bein uppity…
August 10th, 20129:05 pm

August 10th, 20129:06 pm
August 10th, 20129:07 pm
Now for something completely different.

And then there’s this bluegrass dude…
August 10th, 20129:13 pm
August 10th, 20129:16 pm

August 10th, 20129:23 pm
I don’t give a sh*t what ZamVet says…I LIKE Lady Gaga…
And, hey, DEL, Scout, you might want to take the text of that one to church on Sunday…
Speaking of G-d…this one has been running through my head the last few days…what if…?
August 10th, 20129:29 pm
Yeah, what Matti said!
